“nice place, so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I got there and was starving and the first bites of the sizeable mixed fried vegetables and fish I had ordered tasted delicious but it did not take long to realise that the fish was a bit too dry. Not bad, actually, but not perfect. The choice of wine by glass they serve, with a Sardinean vermentino is at the very least peculiar, while their fried chips are frankly bad. Still, the place is not bad, loud, service is extremely friendly and efficient and customers are a nice bunch. I would go back.

“just great ! one of the best fish lunches I ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The place is just a prefab on a canal side close to the port but inside is cute and just to give you an idea, these guys are running 3 shifts off season.
You can also get take-away food
It all started with a waiter bringing us a bottle of artisanal beer we never ordered; however, we felt bad and we decided to keep it also because we did not mind the change from the typical white wine we tended to have with fish ... well we liked it asked the waiter to make the same mistake another 2 times (the name of the beer is "Imper Ale") !
we had very good risottos and strozzapreti with mussels followed by a superb fritto misto (mixed fried calamari, fish, etc...)
My son had a whole fish and it was great
A note is deserved by desserts who live up to and exceed expectations.
I just loved the whole experience

“Busy, loud, central, efficient - good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

In central part of Riccione, close to the bridge over the canale, like a bird´s nest - a small pavilion. Tight setting, very squezy, but with a smile and well planned. For a local restaurant - very good value for money, well planned food with local traditions, no extras, but well done good, tasty food and quite a lot of choice in wines.
Personnel working hard, well organized.
quick solutions in case of mistakes, no problems, good service.
Well done.

“A hidden pearl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

A small and rather noisy place, very popular among locals, with sea food to die for.Even though there specialities are fried fish and sea food, there are other yummy things on the menu.
Also, they have some good wines from the region which is unfortunately not so common in restaurants at this coast.

“Fabulous sea food and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We had a wonderful meal, our neighbours on next table gave us half of their brochette starter!! We struggled with Italian only menu but that added to the fun. Fish platter was mouthwaterimg. It's a sort of shed on edge of canal and can be very hot.
